The New Orleans Saints travel north to take on the Baltimore Antworten

Ravens this afternoon. This will be only the 7th meeting between the Saints and Ravens Cameron Jordan Jersey Salute to Service , and the fifth time that they've played each other in Baltimore. New Orleans has just one victory in six attempts against the Ravens, who became home to Art Modell's Cleveland Browns when they moved there in 1996 and were renamed. The Saints played the relocated franchise in their second game in Baltimore after the move, during week five of the 1996 season. New Orleans quarterback Jim Everett completed 23 of his 30 pass attempts, but was sacked six times, and Baltimore rode the legs of veteran Ernest Byner's 149 rushing yards on the way to a 17-10 Ravens win. The teams would meet again late in the 1999 season, again in Baltimore. The Saints held the Ravens to 61 yards rushing defensively while intercepting four passes and racking up five sacks on the afternoon. Unfortunately, the defensive effort was wasted because of a pathetic offensive showing by the team. They rushed for a paltry 11 yards for the game, and New Orleans quarterbacks Billy Joe Tolliver, Billy Joe Hobert, and Danny Wuerffel combined to complete only 43% of their passes and threw four interceptions in a 31-8 loss.

The Saints would play the then-Baltimore Colts three times between 1967-73, including two times in Baltimore, losing each time. The Saints would get their first (and only) win against the Ravens on December 8, 2002 in Baltimore. Despite losing quarterback Aaron Brooks to a shoulder injury midway through the game, the Saints would prevail 37-25, on the strength of 127 yards rushing and 3 scores from running back Deuce McAllister. New Orleans also controlled the game thanks to 2 interceptions, 3 fumble recoveries, and 2 blocked punts on the afternoon.

In fact, the Ravens are the only team that Brees has never defeated during his 18-yr. career, losing once to them as a starter for the San Diego Chargers in 2003 as well. The first time Brees faced Baltimore as a Saint was on October 29, 2006, which was also the Ravens first game played in New Orleans. Wide receivers Marques Colston and Joe Horn combined for 11 receptions, 289 yards and two scores out of Brees' 24 completions and 383 yards passing. Unfortunately Michael Thomas Jersey Salute to Service , the Saints were held to just 35 yards rushing, and Brees threw three interceptions in a 35-22 loss. Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesThe only time Brees has played in Baltimore was during the 2010 season. The Saints were the defending Super Bowl champions, but were held to just 269 total net yards on the day, including a lowly 27 on the ground. Ravens running back Ray Rice accounted for 233 total yards on the afternoon, and Baltimore kicked two late field goals to gain a 30-24 victory. The last time these two played was on November 24, 2014 in New Orleans. Once again the Saints were unable to establish a running attack, as their top backs Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas combined for only 46 yards on 16 carries. Drew Brees threw for 420 yards and three scores, but was sacked four times and under constant pressure. Ravens running back Justin Forsett gouged the New Orleans defense for 182 yards and two touchdowns, as Baltimore emerged victorious again 34-27. Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesBrees has averaged 357 yards and thrown for nine scores in his match ups against the Ravens, but has been sacked a total of ten times and thrown 8 interceptions. New Orleans will face a similar type of aggressive Ravens defense this time around as well. Baltimore sits near the top of the league in nearly every defensive category and puts heavy pressure on quarterback. The Saints return Mark Ingram to the lineup however, making them one of the most diverse offensive attacks in the NFL. The Ravens offensive attack relies on Joe Flacco hitting big plays down the field, something that the New Orleans defense has struggled to prevent much of the year. The Saints defense puts heavy pressure on opposing backfields themselves, and have been playing better with each passing week. Each squad puts heavy importance on the kicking game, and both teams have outstanding punters and placekickers. A game that features two future Hall of Famers in Brees and Baltimore's Terrell Suggs, along with young and rising stars on both sides may come down to a battle of punting field position and clutch field goals. Saints 24Ravens 20 This is getting to look familiar to New York Giants fans. Too familiar.With Odell Beckham Jr., healthy, rookie Saquon Barkley in the backfield, Sterling Shepard emerging as a complementary target, the Giants' offense should be far more dangerous than in last season's debacle.It sure didn't look that way Sunday in a 33-18 loss to New Orleans. The Saints didn't even need Drew Brees to be his usual dominating self because, after New York's superb opening drive, the offense pretty much went silent until it was too late.Reminiscent of last year under a different coaching staff that didn't survive the full schedule and the Giants wound up 3-13."It's a tough question. It seems like it shouldn't be this hard, but it is Authentic Craig Robertson Jersey ," said Beckham, held to 60 yards on seven receptions. "We got to come with the energy like our game last week (a win at Houston). It's not one person doing this or one person doing that. It's got to be everybody. We've just got to stick together."It's definitely not the results we want, the outcome. It's not the way we want to play."It's similar to how they played in 2017, though, and that's been true throughout September, when they went 1-3 to fall into the NFC East cellar they occupied last season.Following an impressive 10-play, 75-yard drive on their first series that Shepard capped with a 2-yard scoring catch from Eli Manning, the offensive stagnated. While their defense held New Orleans to four first-half field goals, the Giants were managing two punts and a lost fumble.Then the Saints got their attack on track and the Giants couldn't keep up."We were going to just have to have some long drives and continue to play that way," said Manning, whose solid numbers 鈥?31 for 41 for 255 yards and one touchdown 鈥?belied the effectiveness of the offense. "There were a few times where they knocked us out of some good down and distance and we weren't able to sustain some drives."When the Giants brought in Pat Shurmur, the NFL's Assistant Coach of the Year in 2017 while coordinating Minnesota's offense, then added Barkley as the No. 2 overall draft pick, it wasn't supposed to be this way. The elements at the skill positions were in place with Beckham back to health and tight end Evan Engram (now out with a sprained knee) rapidly developing.But Manning needs solid protection, something he rarely gets. Barkley is terrific and picking up yards on his own, but that's a difficult chore down after down.So the Giants have scored 73 points in four games, with 27 coming in the win at Houston."We need to score more points," Shurmur said, stating the obvious. "We had a good first drive and we have to do more of it throughout. That's what I make of it. We need to get better."We need to get back to work and play our way through this. You just keep working. You play your way out of it and you coach your way out of it. Period. That's what you do. That's the reality of it. That's what I trust our guys and our coaches will do."It won't be easy with staunch defenses in Carolina and Philadelphia up next."I think we have talent," Manning said. We just have to put it all together." Custom Houston Texans Jerseys
